Can your vision become blurred 24/7 from 9 hrs a day on the computer?

Asked by Aster (18865points) April 24th, 2018

I admit to doing it. But I have business to attend to, among other more social things on my computer. The last few months my vision has become blurry. Worse than ever in my life. I have no headaches, No trouble driving but I was dizzy one day last week. I attributed it to taking a blue sleep gel plus Melatonin before bed and won’t do that again.

Maybe you need glasses?

Get your eye doctor to prescribe computer glasses. They have a focal point of about 18 inches from your eyes – they make it MUCH easier to focus on the screen that wearing regular glasses and squinting.

You definitely need to see an eye doctor. It’s possible you are developing cataracts but of course none of us knows what is happening.

@elbanditoroso My pc is three feet from my eyes !
And a few years ago the doctor said I was developing a cataract. Probably have one in both eyes by now.

@Aster That would probably be the explanation for the blurriness.

Take a break from digital devices as well as the TV, and phone.
Sometimes your vision will return to normal after a break of a few days.
Every twenty min on a device give your eyes a break by looking 20 feet away.

I did something weird. I bought a box of eyeglasses from Ebay and , when I wear this pair I can see up close and at a distance better. I just wish they were a little bit stronger.
The computer print is less blurred too.

Now, in some states, you can get progressives in the drug store for cheap. That way they work for reading and computer I think.

@JLeslie – only in blue states. I don’t think they sell progressives in the South, for example.
